Tenancy Deposit Claims

We’re launching a new campaign helping clients claim their deposit, and extra compensation, back when landlords haven’t placed their deposit into one of the 3 approved deposit protection schemes.

Claim back up to 3 times your deposit.

No-win no-fee | Submit in 2 minutes | No obligation

Landlords must use deposit protection scheme

You could be eligible to claim if your landlord failed to place your deposit into one of three approved deposit protection schemes.

Claim back up to 3x your deposit

Landlords are legally required to place your money in a deposit protection scheme within 30 days of receiving it. You could claim back 3x your deposit if they failed to do so.

We've made it quick and easy to claim

We're experts in preparing compensation claims and we've made it quick and easy for you to claim back up to 3x your deposit.


If your landlord failed to protect your deposit click on the button below to claim.

The TDP Scheme was Established in 2007

The Tenancy Deposit Protection Scheme (TDP) is aimed at ensuring that individuals renting their homes are better protected and were less likely to have their deposits unfairly withheld by the landlord upon their departure.

Under the TDP Scheme, landlords are prevented from using their tenants' deposits as personal income. It aims to safeguard your deposit until the end of the tenancy. Barings Law will help you claim back up to 3x your deposit where landlords have failed in this legal duty.


No win | No Fee | Easy to Claim

All you need to do is take a few minutes to complete our online form and send us a copy of your tenancy agreement and any receipts you have. Once you have done this, one of our experts will be in touch with you so that they can carry out a review of the circumstances surrounding your case.

If it becomes apparent that your landlord has a case to answer, we will get a compensation claim under way.

We will handle all the negotiating with your landlord and we will always act in your best interests. Our legal experts will look to maximise your compensation via a pre-court settlement. This is generally the quickest way of completing a successful claim and minimises the involvement of our clients.

But do remember that, even if we do have to take your case through to a stage where court proceedings are required, it is highly unlikely that you will be called to give evidence.

And please also bear in mind that you will never lose money by making a compensation claim as a Barings Law customer. You won’t pay anything in advance and if your case does not result in a pay-out for you, we won’t charge you anything for our services.

The first thing to remember is that we work on a no-win no-fee basis so, if we don’t win a claim on your behalf, you don’t have to pay anything. We would only take a fee upon completion of your claim and your landlord paying compensation to you.


If we do win a tenancy deposit claim for you, we take a fee of 35% plus VAT to cover the legal costs and disbursements.

You do not have to use the services of a law firm to represent you and you are entitled to make a claim for compensation yourself by contacting your landlord directly.

However, enlisting the help of Barings Law means you take the hassle and stress out of lodging your claim for your tenancy deposit going unprotected.

We have successfully fought for compensation for tens of thousands of clients so far and, once we have collected the necessary information and associated documentation, such as any receipts and your tenancy agreement, we can take care of everything for you.

We will look to achieve the best result possible for you and, more often than not, this includes the defendant, in this case your landlord, making a compensation payout to you without the need for a court hearing. Once you have accepted a satisfactory offer, it should take approximately six to eight weeks for you to receive the compensation.

You are, of course, free to cancel your claim at any stage of the process. However, please bear in mind that doing so may leave you liable to repay any costs and disbursements accrued in our legal team’s preparation of your case. Regardless of the stage your claim is at, or the progress made, we would always advise seeing the case through to its conclusion as, if your claim does not result in you receiving a payout, there’s nothing for you to pay.

Funds are usually transferred to our customers by means of a BACS payment. However, we are happy to issue your compensation payment via a cheque if you would prefer.

As a tenant, you are entitled to have the deposit you paid to your landlord protected. They have a legal requirement to put your money in a deposit protection scheme. Failing to do so, or do so within 30 days of you paying it, means they haven’t taken adequate care of your money and they will be subject to sanctions.

A successful compensation claim could leave landlords liable to pay up to three times the value of the deposit they received.

Once you have provided us with your details and paperwork (such as a copy of your tenancy agreement and a receipt for your deposit) we will handle your claim.

Our legal team will prepare a claim for you, as well as contacting the landlord on your behalf. All communications and negotiation with them will be taken care of so you won’t have to worry about a thing.

We’ll always act in your best interests and keep you updated regularly throughout your time as our client.

We will look to achieve the best result possible for you, and encourage your landlord to make a satisfactory offer of compensation to you without the need for court proceedings that not only add to the cost of a claim but also extend its duration.

If a court hearing is required, it is highly unlikely that you would be called to give evidence.

Yes, the standard time limit for claims of this type is six years from the date that a reason for making a claim has arisen. In the case of a tenancy deposit claim, the time limit is six years from the date you paid your deposit.

We have a highly successful track record and have helped tens of thousands of customers claim compensation for a number of reasons, such as instances of the mis-selling of financial products or services, or for the distress caused by confidential data being stolen via cybersecurity breaches.

Our legal team are experts in maximising compensation claims for our customers, and while we take care of everything for you, we aim to keep you updated regularly.

If you have failed in your obligations as a landlord, you should seek advice about the options open to you.

Our expert solicitors can mediate if you are involved in a dispute with your tenant and help you to reach an amicable settlement.
